after me. and i am happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the un ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and the besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> brian: well, that was his confrontational tone i can remember him having outside of the election and had his first press conference. she appeared on behalftime white house. how dumb was it to put out there nothing with benghazi and no background as opposed to tom brennan or tom donald or anybody else let alone david petraeus and hillary clinton. so you put somebody out there and that was your fault that got the information and we don't know whose opinions and conclusion and the president wants to call out the people who just want answers. >> gretchen: sorry, i thought you were -- >> brian: senator graham and john mccain heard this and this is what they said. >> i will hold her accountable and she volunteered for the assignment. she is incompetent when comes to benghazi and the person i blame the most is the president. my resp

: the president is being warned against promoting u.n. ambassador susan rice. under fire about her incorrect statements about what happened in benghazi, but democrats say the attacks on rice are about race and gender. we will talk to kelly ayotte and see what she thinks about that. bill: feeling the heat from a major -- >> we don't have the estimate on the grid impact, we are still working on that. if you look through the downtown area the majority of it is dark except for the people who do have generators. there is a fairly substantial impact. copd makes it hard to breathe, but with advair, i'm breathing better. so now i can be in the scene. advair is clinically proven to help significantly improve lung function. unlike most copd medications, advair contains both an anti-inflammatory and a long-acting bronchodilator working together to help improve your lung function all day. advair won't replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms and should not be used more than twice a day. people with copd taking advair may have a higher chance of pneumonia. advair may increase your risk of osteopo
the agency threw a lifeline, if you will, to embattled obama u.n. ambassador susan rice, corroborating ambassador rice's account of what she knew and when she knew it, even though we know now that what she was told and what she repeated was wrong about benghazi. libya remains highly political, partisan and even personal. libya's become a battle between president obama and republican senator ginnie mae who insisted again today the administration knew quickly that al qaeda had attacked. >> and for the president of the united states for two weeks afterwards to deny that that was the case is either a cover-up or it is incompetence. >> reporter: obama u.n. ambassador susan rice denied it, infuriating republicans. mike morrell on the hill today briefed some lawmakers on libya. one, a democrat said the account backed rice, that u.s. intelligence did give her the incorrect account that she passed on. >> this was a spontaneous protest that evolved into something militant, that was the best information they said they had at the time. >> reporter: there had been earlier attacks in benghazi, a war
day parade. live for you along the parade route. >>> the president is behind her, now u.n. ambassador susan rice defendinging her record to critics taking her to task on benghazi. will it be enough? >>> celebrations in gaza. so far, the day-old cease-fire is holding but the real work begins. and that fragile cease-fire between israel and hamas militants brokered by the u.s. government and egyptian president morsi. it is less than 24 hours old. there is deep mistrust. civilians on both sides hoping the agreement will bring a permanent end to the deadly air strikes and rocket fire. in gaza with the i have latest, eamon, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. for the first time in nine days the people of gaza were able to go about their business as usual in a place that usually is not very normal. so, for the first time they were able to wake up today after cease-fire declared last evening and shops and stores reopened people going back to their homes. throughout this conflict 9,000 or so palestinians were displaced from their homes. they took up shelters in u.n. schools. today for the
committee. congressman, good morning. >> good morning, chris. >> u.n. representative cole sent a letter to president morsi asking him to refrain from giving hamas cover to intensify its attacks by allowing egyptian delegations to visit gaza. of course, morsi has been a major player in these truce negotiations. do you think he's sending a mixed message? >> well, he is sending a mixed message. you know, i hope that president morsi is able to play a constructive role. but when high-level delegations of egyptians go into gaza under the pretense of a cease-fire and then terrorist groups violate that cease fire, if israel were to defend itself and members of the delegation was tragically hurt in that attack, we do not want that to be used as a pretense to violate the egyptian/israeli peace treaty. one other thing on this, chris. look, there's a fundamental truth here. i was on the border of gaza and israel in august of 2005 when israel unilaterally and without any preconditions left gaza. actually went in and asked jews this in there to leave. they said here is the land, build something with
at the u.n. and had this graphic illustration of the problem, he created what was a new threshold for them. and the threshold. from the previous to my don't know, 6-12 months the israelis have been focusing on primarily because of the defense minister, what he called the son of immunity. what he meant was, iran was going to of, with the character of the sip their program, the theft of the redundancy, the hardening of the nuclear program would reach a point where the israelis would actually lose their military options. and not just this one, easily accept a situation where they face a threat but no longer have the military option to deal with it. and so what he was trying to say come identify the point at which the zone of immunity, he was saying it would be the end of 2012. he has changed that and said it has been pushed back. when the prime minister was in new york he focused on the point at which the iranians would cross a threshold where there would have the ability to grow the nuclear weapon and you would not be allowed to do anything about it. he was suggesting that would be when they
to the u.n. dan gillerman will be with us moments away. he will give us his perspective coming up. bill: a surprise announcement from israel. president ehud barak says he is quit politics but will stay on after the january elections in israel. often seen as a moderating force and in considering possible military action. he is 70 years old. he says he wants to spend more time with his family. that news out of israel. martha: it is a very busy morning here in "america's newsroom.". ahead evidence iran has used the recent israel-gaza crisis as a bit of distraction from the rest of the world. we have details on secret operations ahead in a fox news exclusive. bill: was this a white house cover up after the days after the attacks in benghazi and the days before? there are new allegations from leading republicans on that. kt mcfarland will break it down. >> it is assumed the proportions of any other major scandal in this town. there are many layers to the onions. there are all kinds of questions that have been raises i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i
. jon: several republican lawmakers are toning down their criticism of u.n. ambassador susan rice and her handling of the deadly attack on the consulate in libya. ambassador rice was under fire for appearances on the television immediately after the attack where she blamed it on the youtube video. many vocal critics, like senator john mccain are turning up the heat on president obama and the state department. >> the problem is the president of the united states in a debate with mitt romney said that he had said it was a terrorist attack. he hadn't. jon: chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington. she has more on all of this. so this shift in focus to the state department, what are we learning about that, catherine? report thank you, jon, and good morning. we may learn early as this week when secretary of state hillary clinton will testify on capitol hill about the warnings and intelligence leading up to the 9/11 attack on the consulate. on sunday talk shows leading republicans pointed to what they believe is the culpability of clinton's state departm
it right now, steve. that's for sure. ambassador john bolton is here, the former ambassador to the u.n., quite a roundup that steve provided for us. how do we get answers here? >> we won't get them from the administration. you saw from those political operatives that they have talking about this that their response to criticism is ad hominem arguments. they are not capable of responding. the tragedy on september 11 was a reflection of a failed obama administration world view, a view that the arab spring had brought democrat to libya in the middle-east, generally, that al qaeda is defeated and the war on terrorism is over. that's what led to the decisions well before the attack in benghazi. not to give enhanced security despite repeated requests from the people on the ground. that's why that cable that fox news came up with that katherine has reported, should have been a fire bell in the night at the state department when it came back to washington, almost four weeks before the attack. >> i have relied on the great reporting by katherine herig and jennifer grif and i know fox news in ge
to un. the fact that f.b.i. involved is significant. >> we have seen resignation of a public figure with intimate knowledge of what happened in benghazi. we are seeing that this is not putting a lid on the situation. in fact, we're seeing it intensify. even step up to another level because if he testify on the hill. he could voluntarily go to the hill. he could be subpoenas. if he goes to any circumstances, he may lawyer up under the circumstances. >> bret: we'll continue to follow every aspect of this. thank you. >> you're welcome. >> bret: now to the fiscal cliff. just 53 days away. both president obama and house speaker john boehner are advocating compromise, yet sticking to their guns on taxes. again, chief white house correspondent ed henry. >> even as president obama suggested the campaign is over by inviting congressional leaders to white house for fiscal cliff negotiations next week -- >> it is time to get back to work. >> he left the impression the campaign continues as the white house invited 200 supporters to the east room. for what republicans dismissed as a rally. >> we
hood to the u.n. general assembly. they've been unable to convince abbas not to do so and president murphy of egypt is unlikely to stand in his way, shannon. >> jennifer griffin live from the white house tonight. thank you. >> the two day old cease-fire between israel and gaza is mostly holding, all has not done smoothly. connor powell has the story from jerusalem. >> the fra gifragile cease-fire. and the border between israel and gaza and some were farmers wanted to get access to their land. and others the cease-fire agreements. after shouting verbal warnings to the crowds, israeli troops opened fire killing one pal al and wounding more than a dozen. and israel and hamas accused each other of violating the the cease-fire agreement so far both sides showed restraint. today the first time in two weeks, the tomorrow leader in gaza appeared in public and even he avoided the normal inflammatory language that acompanies most incidents. >> and i think for some people to try to go inside means something. >> neither side, it appears, wants to return to the violence of the past weeks. and ha
when he gave his speech at the u.n. and he had this graphic illustration of the problem, he created what was a new threshold for them. for the previous, i don't know, six to 12 months, israelis have been focusing on what they called immunity. the result of immunity. what you mean by that was the death and the breath and the hardening of the nuclear program they face an existential threat and have the military option to deal with it. so they are saying under a point at which they own immunity is going to kick in, he was saying this is going to be the end of 2012. he has changed that and has said it has been pushed back eight to 10 months. when the prime minister was in new york, he focused not only on his own immunity, but the point at which iranians would cross the threshold where they would have the ability to build a nuclear weapon and you wouldn't be able to do anything about it. and he was suggesting that that would be when they had one at 20%. that is a limited definition. the issue for him was to define in a way, it also pushed off into the middle of 2013. they came up with di
at the u.n. and e had this graphic -- he had this graphic illustration of the problem, he was, he created what was a new threshold for them. he called it a red line, but a new threshold. they had -- for the previous, i don't know, 6-12 months the israelis had been focusing on, primarily because of the defense minister, ehud barak, the zone of immunity. and what he meant was iran was going to with the character of its nuclear program, the depth, the breadth, the redundancy, the hardening of the nuclear program was going to reach a point where the israelis would actually lose their military option. and no israeli prime minister is going to accept a situation where they face an existential threat, but they no longer have a military option to deal with it. so ehud barak was trying to identify the point at which the zone of immunity was going to kick in. now, he was saying it was going to be the end of 2012. now, he's changed that and said it's been pushed back 8-12 -- 8-10 months. when the prime minister was in new york he focused not on the zone of immunity, he focused on what's the point in
are john kerry and u.n. ambassador susan rice, who has been caught up in the questions about benghazi. so if hillary clinton does leave, does that put more pressure on the president to go in a different direction other than susan rice? >> well, i'm only speculating now, because my reporting on this dates back to well before the election when i got a little bit focused there. i will say that if you talk to people in democratic establishment and political establishment on the hill and in national security circles, you do find that neither of those candidates is seen right now as a perfect choice. there are drawbacks to both of them. ambassador rice has a lot of supporters first and foremost, the president to be sure. controversy over her public statements about benghazi give people pause about whether she's the right person with a confirmation process over, whether she's the right person for the job. in the case of senator kerry, there's doubts from some people about whether he'd be the perfect secretary of state. he was passed over four years ago for secretary clinton. if you took him out
and you have perhaps a u.n. operation in the international coordination is weak leadership. you have confusion. i think one of the highest hurdles to overcome is the residual feeling, often among ngos that they would be contaminated if they do any cooperation with the military. but mostly he says, it's only the military that has the logistic capacity to project not only power, but to project units and sanitation equipment into a remote area and to take people out from the remote area who need more sophisticated care. so if you don't have leadership on the ground, it can help bridge the gaps. i think there's also contiguous set of intellectual political pass. obviously some groups, the red cross, quakers at his long tradition of relating to the military on battlefields and knowing how to deal the potential sense of conflicts and perspectives. but i think that's the dialogue that had to be extended to all of these other groups that are active. i think some are fairly pragmatic. and thinking of doctors without borders right now. there are others who are anything but. so that's an area w
. when i look at what's going on this area, to u.n. security council is dysfunctional, not working, not capable of coming to a conclusion. the g20 has not fulfilled, at least not according to me, the expectations we had when this larger body was created. in other words, from a european point of view, you need to worry about the fact that europe will have obviously a smaller portion of the cake in the future. germany is going to a 1% of the worlds population. the e.u. altogether 5%, 40 or so. in other words, what probably needs minority protection. we have a ton about that much. that's a specific problem for europeans, not so much for americans. if that is correct analysis, did we need to worry about global governance. we are capable as long as we are in charge and as long as we still represent to some degree the majority and as long as are capable for helping to shape the international system. we are capable of shaping an international system, which will be sustained even when we are only a minority. in other words, we called the shot. can we reform the u.n., the g20 system and oth
there by u.n. secretary general for what will be a complex bit of diplomacy. the president's aide said mrs. clinton will not be going into gaza and not talking with hamas. >> can assure you she'll be meeting with the palestinian authority. the united states does not engage directly with hamas. hamas has not met the conditions we set. >> president obama voiced his support for israel's right to defend itself at a news conference on this trip. but in his private diplomacy, he has been urging israel to hold off sending troops into gaza and hopes the rocket attacks can be stopped without an escalation of the battle and the much greater casualties that would bring. this is the first international test of egypt's new muslim brotherhood government and while u.s. officials will not compare it with egypt's former president, hosni mubarak, they do say that they are encouraged by the consultation and cooperation they've had from egypt's new leadership. guys, back to you. >> steve: wendell goler in cambodia. >> brian: i don't know what time it is with laura ingraham. >> steve: she's in our time zone. >
-integrating everything. for the first 75 years, we have never received the people's republic of china and the u.n. report -- they changed this position on the island. and to me, i don't want to get into that too many details. frankly, this is not the heart of the issue. china is trying to advance. there is an issue with japan. from japan to taiwan, the philippines, this is from the viewpoint of china. china has openly expressed their views on this in maritime security. and those are part of the reality. so this is a kind of comprehensive strategy to advance. >> that is an important point. what you're basically saying is that this is about power and the power -- china is clearly becoming more powerful. you are seeing lines being challenged. i remember talking to george soros once after he broke the back of england -- i'm sorry, broke the bank of england. what he saw as a hedge fund manager basically drove so hard against the wind that fundamentally the institutional power on the bank of england site had to collapse. and i have looked at asia and the test of power in the region, whether it was the vp incid
, but to support the ratification of the u.n. convention on the rights of persons with disabilities, or as it's known as the crpd. first, i want to thank chairman kerry of the senate foreign relations committee for his diligence and for his leadership on this issue. he has carried this through the committee. he's brought it to the floor. in fact, i was reminded earlier today, we were both on the committee back in the 198 1990's when we first started working on the americans with disabilities act under the tutelage, really, of senator lowell weicker who remains a great friend to this day and is still a great leader on the issues of people with disabilities, and so we go back that far in working together on these issues. i just want to thank senator kerry for his great leadership in bringing us to this point and hopefully the point being that we're going to ratify this wonderful treaty. i want to thank senator lugar again for all of his efforts through so many years on so many different things. on this issue especially going back to the americans with disabilities act, but through all these eff
't the cia anticipate the attack or do more to stop it? so much republicans have been going after u.n. ambassador susan rise rise, she says intelligence pointed pointed ton taken just, not -- spontaneous, not a pre-planned attack. john mccain is calling her -- -- >> the reason i don't trust her is because i think through knew better, and if she didn't, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> president obama is aggressively coming to rice's defense. >> if senator mccain and graham and others want to go after something, they should be after me. >> reporter: house and senate intelligence committees will be hearing the reports. >>> for a change, some good news about california's budget deficit. the nonpartisan legislate tier budget says california is now facing a $1.9 billion budget deficit in the coming year. that is well below the $13 billion deficit previously projected. the state could see even more surpluses afternoon that. the improving economy, budget cut-backs, and new tax revenues from the passage of prop 30 all credited for california's improving financial situation. >>> also,
! >> the nurses are upset after the hospitals un laterally im-- implemented. the hospitals say they need to cut costs because of the current economic situation. >>> a restaurant in sausalito is providing a thanksgiving feast for free one day early. avatars restaurant will dish up 1300 meals for those in need. the owners plan to serve the free meals from 4:00 p.m. until 9:30 or until everyone is fed. on the menu, pumpkin and turkey enchiladas. this has been a 24-year tradition for the restaurant. that down pretty goo -- that sounds pretty good. >> yes. we do live shots from there. i can just smell the food. >>> you know it's been raining a lot around the bay area. look out our window and steve is talking about fog. live pictures. steve is coming back and he will tell you when the wet weather will leave and what to expect on thanksgiving day. >>> and with the founder of an -- what the founder of an internet security company is saying about his life on the run in a new blog. >>> san mateo bridge driving not that great because of wet weather. we've had problems. we'll tell you where the traffic tr
it is pound the table buy. here's your problem. they missed the street two quarters in a row. very un-apple like. if this was steve jobs era the street would overlook that. they would be times report under steve jobs something would miss. always a component problem. he always got the benefit of the doubt. i think initially tim cook did but i'm not sure that is the case now. he has to prove you know what, i can kind of carry the ball. other than that the stock obviously is cheap from most traditional valuation metrics. even at 700 you could argue it was cheap by the way you would typically judge a stock. the earnings estimates for next year come down to 50 bucks from 52.50. the street is very antsy on it right now. although you had two up grids this summer, stiffle and ubs on the. tracy: you're at 549 now. you potentially say would you short it? >> i wouldn't short it. i wouldn't get that cute with it. i have it in my retirement account as a matter of fact,. tracy: you would go with it. >> that is the downside risk. that is the number it must absolutely hold or something is wrong. trac
'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. and, you know, we are after an election now. i think it is important for us to find out exactly what happened in benghazi, and i'm happy to cooperate in any ways that congress wants. we have provided every bit of information that we have and we will continue to provide information, and we've got a full blown investigation. and all the information will be be scorched to congress. i don't think there's any debate in this country that when you're four americans killed, that's a problem. we've got to get to the bottom of it. there needs to be accountability. we've got to bring those who carried it out to justice. they won't be any debate from me on that. when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she is an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person
. s. -- un security council held a closed- door consultation instead. following the consultations, members heard a report from the secretary. this is 50 minutes. >> a meeting of the security council is called to order. the provisional agenda of this meeting is the situation in the middle east, including the palestinian question. the agenda is adopted. the security council will now begin its consideration of item number two of the agenda. on behalf of the council, i welcome the secretary general, his excellency, mr. ban ki-moon who is joining the conversation at via telephone conference. i now give the floor to the secretary. >> thank you, distinguished members of the council, excellencies, ladies and gentleman. thank you for the opportunity to brief you today on my three- day visit to egypt, israel, the occupied palestinian territory, and jordan. since the situation in does that and israel escalated last week, i made it my priority to contribute to halt the violence with a priority aim of protecting civilians. i canceled a previously planned trip to travel to the middle east as a
's improving off the bottom. it's a huge increase. i don't think this is enough to get an un-- it's politically speaking, it's that friday number that people will be focusing on of the what is the unemployment rate. >> steve: the monthly? >> yeah. i think that may tick up. particularly if more people are looking for work, it could have an impact on this race by picking up even though things are getting marginally better. >> gretchen: does this thursday number, which we always report weekly, the first-time unemployment claims, people walk into the office for the first time, does that number correlate? >> sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. none of these numbers correlate very well. >> gretchen: so because this went down and lower than expected doesn't mean unemployment will go down tomorrow? >> no. on friday, if the number goes up, for example, goes up to 8, let's say, 8%, that doesn't mean that things are necessarily bad 'cause more people are looking for work. they feel more confident. so all these numbers have to be looked at in context and -- remember, these are statistical estimate
is where the u.n. moved and established a presence and governments in iraq in afghanistan and was u.s. invasion, but in north africa, particularly in these countries we are discussing, something new is happening. this might think, in some respects is the international community learning how to do things into for ways. certainly we are not coming back to what we have done over the last 20 years. we are going to do this into for weight. as an engine mastectomy we are learning what the processes, and if you're on the ground you can see there are a lot of things are gonna people. there's a hesitancy about this intervention in this involvement that is quite telling and was not there, you know. >> interesting. thank you. >> yes. >> identify yourself. >> deal woodward, and i would like to know how women's rights are being protected and advanced, and i would like to know if the muslim brotherhood is seen as the main impediment to that and how the constitution's are including them. >> let's start, perhaps, with the most significant case, the constitutional issues in the role of the muslim br
it was reported that the administration voted in the un to fast track an arms treaty that reaches all the way to private sales of small fire arms. >> a global arms treaty. >> steve: this is what dick morrison warned us about. and how do the founders feel about that? >> i think it is clear that the founders did not give the president treaty power to trump individual rights guaranteed by the bill of rights >> chris: check it out. it is a fascinating new book. it is call would the naked constitution, are there president. >> lost his attention. thank you. wine and booze. a dry spell looming when people might need a drink . >> steve: it is friday. heroes who are not stopping being herose . good morning guys, you are next on "fox and friends". ♪ ♪ [ female announcer ] i found the best cafe in the world. ♪ nespresso. where there's a coffee to match my every mood. ♪ where just one touch creates the perfect cup. where every cappuccino and latte is made with fresh milk. ♪ and where clothing is optional. nespresso. what else? has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure d
-qaeda-inspired affiliated attack. yet five days later, the ambassador to the u.n. went out to all sunday news shows and told what was absolutely defiance of any rational logic or thinking. people don't come to spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and rocket propelled grenades. that was obvious on its face. why did they deceive the american people? why did the president of the united states continue to deceive the american people and the world? we need a select committee. nobody died in watergate. nobody died in iran-contra. four people died here. because of their lack of action as my friend lindsey graham says, they turned that consulate into a death trap. >> steve: they did indeed. now, senator, for people watching, they might not understand, we know some committees are meeting right now on capitol hill behind closed doors. you're calling for a select committee which politically might be hard -- i understand the republicans practice bely would go for that, but it might be hard to get the democrat controlled senate to sign on board with a select committee. >> it's going to require public pressure. the am
's fixed system on the bottom. it's un-- unmanned underwater vehicles that could be antonymous. we are not far from being able to deploy the system. we'll don't develop in field and integrated unmanned aerial system to froarpt a carrier. this next year, here in this fiscal year 13, we'll do a demonstration of unmanned vehicle from a carrier and recover that will be able to use that system. that will read us to building a system that can operate within our air wings and provide that persistence, maybe support logistics. if we don't have all the system of support the pilot. that's extra weight. extra payload, extra systems, extra capability. and that will be an important part of our future. a few words about our rebalance to the asia-pacific. sustaining appropriate capability in the middle east. it's been a long time focus for the u.s. navy. five of our seven treaty allies are in the pacific. six of the top economies in the largest army in the world are in the asia-pacific. so it makes sense that we would do that. as i have shown you or mentioned on thegraphic there, 50 -- about half
to al-qaeda in that u.n. speech to the world was that al-qaeda had been weakened and osama bin laden was dead. so i think this raises additional questions. it goes beyond ambassador rice. first of all, why were the talking points changed? it doesn't make any sense to me that we were trying to dupe al-qaeda that. doesn't pass the laugh test. buff also why was the president out 14 days later and still fail to go call it a terrorist attack to the world? >> steve: absolutely. because we don't know a lot of what is told by the intelligence community to the president of the united states, but we understand that 72 hours after the attack the presidential daily briefing, which tells the president about all the stuff that's going on, and it's classified, said just that. it wasn't spontaneous, and that it apparently had ties to that al-qaeda affiliate. so the president knew, even though he was out saying something else. >> i think it's deeply troubling, we got to get to the bottom of it. we have to assume he's receiving the classified information and we have no know why were the talking points
and that will be at a time when the afghan government is in full control of its own sovereignty. the current u.n. security council resolution basis for the current operation will come to an end. you'll need a newly legal basis for the new operation. who would enforce agreements for the 1940s and the north atlantic council is just engaging with the afghan government on what the shape of that mission would be. so there's a mixture of conditions based in the implementation and then there is the beginning of the negotiation about what the next mission will be. but as i said, it will not be a combat mission. the wellbutrin advisory mission, which is part of the long-term commitment of the international community to afghanistan way out over the transformation decade of the tokyo summit this summer. so there's going be amick shared in a fact, military capability building. but the international community and a much broader sense is doing for the very substantial problems of quality develop and comment governments in afghanistan and the individual countries like our own are doing in bilateral programs, which is pa

of greece, facing a default that would threaten the entire eurocurrency. finally, there is a new u.n. report saying that concentrations of greenhouse gases are up 20% since the year 2000. the report, days ahead of a climate conference reminds world government that their efforts to fight climate change are far from enough to meet their stated goals of limiting global warming. some of the headlines this hour on c-span radio. >> you career officers changed this army so that it becomes a volunteer army. by your soldiers in the villages and towns of america. we did that. over five or six years we created a splendid force of young men and women willing to serve their country as volunteers. they had the same tradition, culture, loyalty, and dedication as any other generation of americans. they prove themselves in the gulf war, the panama invasion, the last 10 years in iraq and afghanistan. the thing we have to keep in mind is something that president lincoln said during his second inaugural address. care for those who go to battle. widowed and children. to care. never forget that they are carrying
going forward, rick. rick: conor powell live on the ground in jerusalem, thanks. heather: well, u.n. ambassador susan rice defending those early comments on the benghazi terror attacks just days after the raid on the u.s. consulate. ambassador rice went on five sunday talk shows and said that the attack grew out of a spontaneous to protest over an anti-muslim film. and now she says those remarks were based on the intelligence she was given. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. heather: national security correspondent jennifer griffin is live from washington with the latest. hi, jennifer. >> reporter: hi, heather. well, essentially, she came out now was it's increasingly -- because it's increasingly clear that the president wants to nominate her to be his next secretary of state despite strong objections from senators such as john mccain. >> i have
